Podi's / Ready Masala's South Indian Recipes Tamil Recipes

Rasam Powder

Ingredients :

Cumin Seeds – 1 cup

Coriander Seeds – 2 cups

Black pepper – 2 cups

Curry Leaves – 5

Garlic pods – 20 ( optional)

How I do it :

Wash and dry roast curry leaves.

Make a coarse powder with curry leaves, cumin seeds, coriander seeds and Black pepper .

You can also mildly roast them and grind. This improves shelf life.

Just before removing to a container add the Garlic pods and just swirl the grinder for 2 seconds.

Store the RASAM powder /Podi in an air tight container and in freezer for  a couple of months !

Special Instructions :

You can omit garlic while making the rasam powder and add later during sauting while making rasam. Personally I prefer the garlic loaded aroma of the powder.

I add some dried curry leaves to the powder while storing, this way I don’t have to use them during  sauting.
